Voices of Travel


Oahu’s Turtle Bay Resort has opened the doors to its reinvented surfside spa-fitness-wellness centre, Nalu Kinetic Spa, a distinctive and energetic environment for the complete immersion in total health. Perched on the edge of the world’s most exalted waves, Nalu Kinetic Spa is surrounded by water and movement. According to officials, this powerful energy is surprisingly calming similar to “meditation in motion”or the calm with the chaos. With Nalu Kinetic Spa’s goal being more than purely aesthetic, like the ocean itself, it will gently push you to a new place. “To us, a spa is more than steam baths, scented towels, and pretty pedicures. It’s where fun, fitness, and the vibrancy of total health stream together as inseparable as the waves that flow into each other. And, beauty and wellness are a natural result,”said Sierra Shore, director of wellness, Turtle Bay Resort. Nearly doubling in size to 11,000 square feet, the enhanced spa provides a multi-sensory experience for guests to submerse themselves in the elements of nature for relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation. Dramatic window walls bring the raw, restless power of surf indoors, resulting in a space that is inseparable from its authentic location. The spa’s new innovative Wave Motion table (only the third in North America) gently rocks you as if you were floating in water. Warm salt stones calm you down after an adrenalin surge, and organic, eco-friendly, and marine-infused product lines such as Naturopathica and Osea nurture and replenish sun and sand exposed skin and hair as well as the soul. The expanded spa now includes the creation of a movement studio for popular wellness programs such as Zumba, Hot Hula and yoga; a new fitness centre with floor-to-ceiling windows, furnished with state-of-the-art cardio, strength and functional training equipment; as well as an expanded beauty salon which features a unique pedicure area with garden views, a communal manicure bar and multi-purpose hair/makeup styling stations; an expanded and updated outdoor relaxation area; reception and retail area which showcases a diverse selection of personal care, beauty and lifestyle categories represented by premier brands and local purveyors. The spa also features three new open-air garden view massage cabanas and a new indoor couple’s treatment room with a breathtaking view of the surf. (http://www.TurtleBaySurf.com)
